Karen was born December 9, 1947 in Mauston, the daughter of Edwin and Marie (Mattas) Georgeson. She was raised in the New Lisbon area and graduated from New Lisbon High school in 1966.

Karen loved her family more than anything in this world. She was a compassionate and caring person who would give a stranger the shirt off her back. Fun-loving, easy going, and full of sass; she was known by many as simply “Ma”. Karen was quick to forgive and cherished the little things in life, recognizing them as the things that really mattered. She enjoyed the outdoors: camping, fishing, sitting around a campfire, people watching, and spending time with family, friends, and her fur babies; especially her guard-dog, Blanca who was always on her lap.

Karen is survived by her sons, Kreg (Christy) Georgeson of New Lisbon, Dennis (Brenda) Blixt of Lyndon Station and Jerry (Leslie) Georgeson of Necedah, Wisconsin; a daughter, Tonya (Gabriel) Iglesias of Mauston; a brother, Duane (Karen) Georgeson of Necedah; a sister in law, Nancy Blixt of Mauston; 14 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren; and some very dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Dennis; sisters, Nadine, Marie and Eileen; and brothers, Robert, Edwin, James and Charles.

Special thanks goes out to Marv (Mary) Cox and Hospice Touch of Tomah.

In lieu of flowers memorials of remembrance can be directed to the family.
